Heriot-Watt student designs Scottish Parliament anniversary tartan

Jul '09
Teri Scott, a student from the School of Textiles and Design has won a competition to design the first official Scottish Parliament tartan to mark the 10th anniversary since devolution.

The competition received 62 entries from textile and design students studying at thirteen Further and Higher Education establishments across Scotland.

The winning design is exclusively being used by the Scottish Parliament for items sold in the Parliament shop and for marketing and publicity. The new tartan will be registered with the new Scottish Tartans Register as 'the official Scottish Parliament tartan'.

The production of the winning cloth into a clothing garment will be completed in time for the Presiding Officer to wear at the 10th anniversary event on 1 July 2009. Perth-based Kiltmakers and Weavers, Macnaughton Holdings Ltd have woven the tartan by Teri, which was inspired by the 'year of the homecoming'. Archie Browning, Sales Director Macnaughton Holdings Ltd said: "The House of Edgar is delighted to be working with a talented young Scottish Graduate (Teri) and proud to be weaving the celebratory devolution tartan."

Teri Scott, winner, Heriot-Watt University, said: “I feel very excited and incredibly proud to have designed the tartan which has been chosen to represent the Scottish Parliament on it's 10th anniversary. My inspiration was taken from the year of the 'homecoming', a collection of heather tones and vibrant thistle colours taken from Scotland's beautiful landscape. I would describe the tartan as being a fusion of modern design with traditional qualities.”

The two runners-up were Ruth Duff, Heriot-Watt University and Stephen Swinney, Cardonald College. Terri, Ruth and Stephen have been offered paid industry work placement opportunities. Terri will also receive a length of the finished tartan and an invitation to the Parliament's 10th birthday event on 1 July.

Presiding Officer Alex Fergusson MSP, said: “The quality of entries we have received has demonstrated the outstanding potential and talent amongst Scotland's design students. The winning entry is a unique design consisting of purples and greens. I hope that this first official tartan will become one which both MSPs and members of the public will enjoy wearing in the years to come.”
